WESTFIELD, NJ — Remember to practice social distancing if you go to the Westfield Farmers Market Saturday.

That’s the message from the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, which has announced that the market will open for in-person shopping for the first time this season on Saturday, 9 a.m. — 1 p.m. at the Westfield Train Station parking lot, 104 North Ave. West.

The market will still offer drive-through pickup of pre-orders 8 a.m. — 9 a.m., organizers said, for those who prefer contactless shopping. At each vendor’s discretion, customers may not be allowed to handle products prior to purchase as result of COVID-19, the organizers said.

  • If you are feeling ill (fever, coughing, sneezing, etc.), please do not shop at the market.
  • Send only one shopper from your household to reduce the number of attendees.
  • Wear a face covering (that covers your nose and mouth) to protect yourself and others. You will not be permitted to shop at the market without one.

  • Customers must wait in line to be assisted by the vendor.
  • Be as efficient as possible with your shopping.
